  • You have Part A and have days left in your benefit period

  • You have a qualifying hospital stay

  • Your doctor has designated that you need daily skilled care.

  • You need skilled services for a medical condition that is either a hospital-related condition, or a condition that started when you were getting care in a skilled nursing facility.
